La Boom

1245 Stanley
SEE MAP

Tel. 514.866.5463
Attached to the notorious Chez Pare, La Boom attracts a crowd of people suitable for the cover of a nightlife magazine. This is where you take your out-of-townies to catch a fetid breath of Montreal club life - and they might just never leave. The night I went, the dance floor was so crowded that I could barely squeeze my big-ass pass a group of young, but refreshingly beautiful girls, only to stumble forward into a group of testosterone-aggressive males.

La Boom is separated into several rooms, each playing a different style of music, all interconnected like the chambers of the heart. I cruised from the hip hop room to the Soca room to chill with some Greek friends...I got lost, and tried to retrace my steps. A short, Lego-ish bouncer stepped in my path.

"I'm sorry, Sir, but you can't go this way." he stated functionally.

Shocked, I looked down at him in confusion. He pointed off in another direction, where there was another hallway, one that I swear wasn't there before. I shrugged and moved into the flow, another blood cells in the cacophony of pulsing veins - only to be dumped into a strange room with malevolent red lighting and small table lamps, occupied by bored-looking exotic dancers.

Claudia, you know how much (or at least I hope you do) I admire you. Your family’s struggle with your sister pulls my heartstrings. Mostly, I guess, for your parents. Who don’t have all that much time left for her to come through and do the right thing. But also I know, as your sister, you have suffered silently as wer2#&8l30;Blenda

supposed to be huge event "pornstar night". Made a guestlist for me and my gf and 5 other friends, supposed to be FREE ENTRY with guestlist, but ended up having to pay 10$ each with guestlist. Disappointed. And, there was only one out of all 4 rooms open. Decent drink deals, slow bar service, music was alright. Overall, me and my gf displeased with our night out there. Will not return for a while.

I wasn't crazy about it the 1st time I went. The interior is alright but the room in the basement is a death trap, going down the stairs with carpet was hard for someone who was sober. Plus the crowd is way too dirty.

La Boom has great music, its a cool place. For the guys who say the girls are snooty and push you away, you should keep in mind that we're not all out to pick up, sometimes we just want to go have a good time with friends. And having random guys groping you and ignoring the no's is not the way to have a good time. The ambiance there is great minus the groping, the staff is nice and hot, and when it gets too hot from the crowds, theres AC in certain areas. Give it a shot, its a blast, always depends on the company you're with!!

I have the impression most people are 18 at this club. Not that I have a problem but i cant stand immature crowds. and smoking inside is so grimey...yah i smoke but in a club go outside thats kife...but i suppose the club wont need to invest in a fog machine. and just cause your ugly dont mean you gotta hate cause you didnt pick up. I plan on visiting montreal but i wanna go somewhere where im not sorounded by "miners" atleast theyd be minors in ontario. Please let me know where a good club is...possibly even this one i dunno...yet. mature girls that know how to have a good time.Thanks. Cheers Brad from London ON

Wow, some of you are really sad individuals. Giving a club low scored cause the women/guys aren't hot enough. LOL. Shows which one here are just tools. Anyways, LaBoom is a dope club, true is does get packed, but usually there are good people there. Real party going people. Had some good house whe I went last time. Hey it has it's up and downs.

When i went, the night started off bad with the bouncers giving attitude to some friends and several complained that the bartender actually told them how much tip they should give him. Other then that though its a pretty good club if you like a club with lots of space and the idea of different rooms with different music is great cause it offers music for everyone and i also don't like to hear the same thing over and over again so its fun to just walk around and see what's happning in different rooms.

La boom is not bad at all in general except it is a bit crowded than other clubs, which i don't mind personnally. What i don't like is the music on the top floor, when it is good, it rocks! when it is bad, it sucks!

I've been to La Boom on several Saturday nights and it used to be a really hot place to go, now it's always overcrowded and the music is starting to suck! I also brought my boyfriend from England there and he even said he wasn't too impressed! Surely there has to be a better place to go than La Boom!

La BOom is THE place to go!! The music is great upstairs and downstairs, there're 4 rooms, so you can always change if you don't like the song playing or if you wanna escape for someone, there's always a free seat somewhere to rest, there's never a line up to go to the bathroom since there're a lot, the waiters are cute, and you can always find a VIP pass somewhere to go back the next week. Lots of great people too. The rooms are amazing and its always crowded.

I havent even been to this club but have to question why so many ppl rate this club at a 8, 9 or a 10 yet so many ppl rate it a 1, 2 or a 3 can some one explain to me what you guys call a good club. While half the girls say the guys are sleazy and not good looking the other half will turn around and say the guys are hot and really respectable. I guess its an indurvidual choice thing but you guys brag about a 4 room club where the club is still pack to way over its legal capacity. A club you cant dance in to me isnt worth going to. Going to clubs to pick up aint everything which is the impression im getting from some of you guys. Im heading up your way later this year and looking for some goood clubs with some good trance and house music so if anyone could reply to this and let me know i would be more than greatful. From the sound of this club with it being over packed and that but the club over all sounds ok. Cheers from down under

La Boom is definitely an awesome club. Me and my friend went on a friday night and had the time of our lives! i suggest you go on your b-day (i did) we got free drinks for hours and a free bottle of champagne. The music was GREAT but the girls were kind of bitchy. I would say the dress code is a little on the casual side. We showed up expecting a little more of an upscale club, so we dressed to impressed, but ended getting evil looks from alot of girls there... lol oh well the guys were AMAZINg and overall the club was hot. For sure one of the best in MTL.

LaBoom is a sure thing. I've been a few times and it's always been awesome! Lots of choices of music, always tons of people, the drinks aren't too expensive, and it's crazy fun! The only downfall is that sometimes there are so many people it's disgusting! I say Saturday is the best night, though Fridays are great too.

Besides the music that was played, this was a very disappointing club. For one, there should be a much better dress code that restricts thug wear and jeans. Also, although I agree that hats shouldn't be allowed at clubs, certain ones like fedoras and bowlers (dressy hats in other words) should be fair game. Some bouncer had the nerve to tell me constantly to remove my fedora which pissed me off. Also, the girls are way too tight in terms of who they dance with. Even the fat chicks reject everyone. The place to bring people from out of town? I don't think so.

new years eve paid 90 dollars to get in and it was way over crowded, the only free alcohol was cheap rum and coke and we waited in line for 3 hours (got there at 8:30) and finally got in at 11:30 left 2 mins after getting in. HORRIBLE CLUB

I bought a ticket for $75, which was also supposed to be free drinks all night. When i finally got in after 3 hours, at about 5 after 12, i waited half an hour to get a drink and still paid for it...also i could only get 1 at a time, but my friends who were with got 10 at a time. Also your club was way over capacity, which is not only unsafe but illegal. Everyone i talked to who went to your club were extremely disappointed, and from either you or breakaway plans on getting back their money.

La Boom, hmm? That`s exactly the type of blow I got across my head if I consider the service that was rendered for these nifty $75 tickets. No anticipation, just greed to get as many people as they can to join this overcrowded sardine party....At least that`s the smelly impression left in my mind. Very original though, the only club in the last ten years that let`s you walk around in the club with your coat! (no coat check tickets or hangers left). As club promoters, you cannot just overlook, people`s confortability and disrespect them by compromising their commitments and most importantly, their intentions to have a good time for more profits. Remember, greed for profits is short a term gain and long term loss. In a nutshell, this club is a sunk cost soon to lead to a sinking reputation.

I went to LaBoom on New Years Eve it was the worst party of all time. They doubled their capacity, we waited an hour and a half outside in the cold to get into this bordello I paid $85 dollars for.I had 1 drink, it was open bar my ass, you had to wait an hour to get a watered down drink. The guys were disgusting and grabbing my ass every two seconds, the crowd was sleazy and had no class, the whole staff was ugly and in a coma, the manager was a missing person (probably hiding from embarassment).They didn't even have enough room to take my coat so I had walk around with it. Being a relatively new club I'm guessing there was a high lack of experience on the part of the organizers in organizing an event such as this (I use term event lightly). There should be a negative rating on this rate venue to accomodate LaBoom(like -500 for New Years Eve!) Good luck to Club LaBoom in building up your reputation after ripping off 1300 people, including those who came from abroad and now think Montreal's night life is full of shit!

I love it there, the silver room is my favorite withe the stage and speakers to dance on. True I havn't seen the most attractive male patrons there, but every once in a while you'll see a cutie. The bar staff is pretty good looking, and always extreemly friendly. But don't take my word for it. You should at least come once and make your own judgement. I don't think you'll regret it.
